Last evening with well 6 teams in play. Stream will be online a 60 minutes or so.
 
And what a finale it was. They were very close last week in Gent, but now took in in Zurich. :)

Also great racing from Dillier, who won last year with Keisse. He has a bright future in six day racing and on the road.
 
Can't remember if Rotterdam had better coverage last year.

Anyway this will be reduced to a bit of result googling.

De Ketele, from the leading pair was pulled from the race based on medical advice, effectively giving the victory to Keisse/Terpstra. Final standing:

1 Iljo Keisse (BEL) / Niki Terpstra (NED) 0 281
2 Michael Mørkøv (DEN) / Alex Rasmussen (DEN) -3 273
3 David Muntaner (ESP) / Albert Torres (ESP) -3 225

7 Thomas Boudat (FRA) / Vivien Brisse (FRA) -12 162
8 Wesley Kreder (NED) / Jesper Asselman (NED) -16 70
9 Andreas Müller (AUT) / Andreas Graf (AUT) -17 16
10 Didier Caspers (NED) / Melvin van Zijl (NED) -18 34
11 André Looij (NED) / Ivan Slik (NED) -20 67
12 Michael Vingerling (NED) / Yondi Schmidt (NED) -31 52

Full race schedule for Terpstra. Performs year around. No problem.

Even earlier :)

"After a 35 year absence, six-day racing returns to it's birthplace, London!"

Live on Eurosport 18-23rd October so overlaps a day with the European Champs. Might not have coverage of the first day

I went on Monday and Friday. Monday was a slow start in attendance and ambience, by Friday the place was pretty full and a great atmosphere

Yes I went last night too. There were far more there than it appeared on Eurosport for the other nights. The atmosphere was really good but didn't quite have the feel of a continental six day, or the original Skol 6, but maybe the big track and being more open stole some of that. The sound was good but the DJ will have to practice more how to combine it with the actual racing.

The really big disappointment to me was the judging and the screens. The judging was so poor that they even placed Latham/Wood in 2nd place in the same lap as Keisse/Hoecke and Ketele/de Pauw at the end. They were actually a lap down on these two. Latham/Wood went into the final chase in the lead by virtue of being the first to 200 when gaining a lap in the 500TT. During the chase all the laps Latham/Wood gained were neutralised on the track by the other two (and a few others) with Ketele/Pauw and Keisse/Hoecke reaching 200 in the closing laps. The judges completely missed awarding those bonus laps and the crowd was completely unaware because the screens were only updating points and not laps. Needs to be sorted out for future. No good having great music and lights if you get the result wrong.

Good point about the judging/screens, they were less than helpful. The beef I had was the sound, it may have been because I was sitting at the trackside and the acoustics were a problem, but it was difficult to hear the commentators and I couldn't hear the interviews at all (I don't think I could have done even if the DJ wasn't playing music while people were talking).

I agree the acoustics were not good but I don't think that's down to the organisers. The building's shape will have the effect of dissipating sound which will decrease clarity. Short of installing a false ceiling I don't think that could be improved. The whole thing had the feel of people working and trying very hard to make it the best six day ever but missing some vital points. I still think the basic venue is not right. The whole charm of a traditional six is the intimate atmosphere and the 200m tracks allow that (as well as making the racing faster because the laps are easier/quicker to obtain). I notice that Day 6 is not available on demand on Eurosport when all the other nights were. I suspect the organisers didn't want too many people noticing the incorrect result? I guess they think it would make them very unpopular with there target audience to demote the British pair now.

Regarding the portion I bolded in your post: There are no bonus laps awarded on
points in the final chase/madison of a Six Day, my friend. (see UCI rule 3.2.244)

That's very interesting and it certainly appears to be the rule, my friend. But in that case every six day I've attended, including Ghent and Rotterdam for several years, has been breaking the rules.
